ABOUT ME | I am a contemporary fine artist, event planner, author, and philanthropist living and working in Denver, CO. My work is influenced by nature, science, and the human experience. No two pieces are ever the same, nor can they ever be duplicated by my hand. Each piece is crafted of the highest quality materials with respect to its intended context.
MISSION AND CHARITABLE GIVING | The purpose of artmaking is to advance human consciousness and break down barriers. I maintain a robust program of charitable donations.
My philanthropic foci are the environment and sustainability, children's health initiatives, and empowering marginalized peoples. If your organization aligns with this mission, I encourage you to reach out via the contact form.
METHOD | I employ highly experimental techniques and a volatile, expressive methodology. Owners and collectors find new and interesting dialogues every time they view their piece and often comment on the transient nature of the forms, colors, and textures.
Beyond the act of creating beautiful objects, I firmly believe the purpose of art is to provoke, challenge, and question. Artmaking is a fundamental biological imperative, the result of which is no less than the advancement of human consciousness. My method is rigorous, disciplined, and philosophically inclined.
Artists are uniquely positioned to address, through the artmaking process, the most important moral and ethical dilemmas of our time. I begin every project with a thesis or dialectic which underpins the work and examines the origin and impact of it. This critical first step in the creation of work is called IDEOGENESIS. The ideogenetic phase of any work takes as long as it must.
For this reason, in order to create powerful, high-quality works of art, I welcome your commission inquiries but do not work on deadline.
Subsequent steps in the process include digital visualization, sketches, and revision. When I am satisfied with the execution of a concept, I begin the process of creating finished work.
